Want to learn about movement therapy and how this can enhance your manual therapy practice?

IMT1 short course is designed for manual therapists who want to use movement as a therapeutic tool in the management of musculoskeletal pain and function. Many clients come for massage or manual treatment to reduce pain and increase range of motion. This can also be achieved through the use of the clients own movement to enhance the effects of any manual treatment and save a therapist’s hands.

Massage and manual therapies have shown to be effective for reducing musculoskeletal pain, but the results are often short term. The best long term outcomes for your clients managing chronic pain is achieved by developing confidence in movement and you can show them how.

The Lancet and most medical journals are highlighting the importance of exercise and building confidence in movement in the management of low back and musculoskeletal pain.

To fit within a clinical framework, common movement patterns are separated into assessment and movement exercises focused on improving function, relaxation and developing confidence. This can work together seamlessly with a remedial massage or manual therapy clinical approach.

In addition, the exercises demonstrated can be used as a self-care tool for both clients and therapists. For the therapist, these simple exercises are a great way to monitor their own musculoskeletal function.

  1. 5 out of 5

    As a practitioner, it is always to go refresh information and also see how it can be easily added into both my daily life along with that of my clients, the format is excellent with being about to go back or at your own pace … a must for all practitioners, new or experienced. We forget to maintain ourselves when the focus is so much on the client. Bright Health Training offers a step by step approach to teach you strong foundations to work from. I highly recommend this course. Cameron. Dip. Rem Massage

    Well I have to say, I was a little apprehensive doing on-line cpe courses, but that was soon dispelled.
    Aran & Sheree made it so easy to learn this way. Aran obviously has a wealth of experience and knows how to impart his knowledge well. The course notes are great.
    A very pleasurable way to learn and earn CPE points.
